.9%, slightly up from 7.8% from september. in issuing 171,000 jobs added in october. this is according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick and it was a down tick the month before, and but unemployment is basically staying around 8%. if you count the people who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. those are the people that we have to address, there needs, their concerns, and make sure they have a job. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i'm afraid we're going to see the next no. for unemployment is going to be 8%-- next norm will be around 8% and around that 20 million figure. i think we can do a lot better and governor romney certainly have the program to do that. in ohio, we have proven that it can be done. host: judas on the democratic line from ohio, you are on with mr. bennett. -- judith on t

billion when you combine the presidential campaign, the 35 u.s. senate races and the 34 races for the house of representatives. the president has 186 electoral college votes. 57 leaving. mitt romney has 36 states that lean mitt romney and 170 mitt romney electoral votes. caller: the question on the table is who we think is going to win and why. i believe president obama will be reelected. the tipping point will be the auto bailout. those people in ohio and michigan -- right now, the economy in ohio and michigan -- and i spend a lot of time in wisconsin -- they will be voting for obama because of that bailout. romney can pick up the democratic states, north carolina and florida. obama could lose the popular vote due to an increased amount of republican turnout this year and the effects of sandy and the northeast. it could hurt democratic turnout there. i solidly see an obama victory. host: the washington post is writing about myths about the electoral college. guest: the caller was right. states like new jersey and new york will not affect the electoral college. president obama
